The Hooton Park Trust
The Hooton Park Trust (HPT) was formed in 2000 with the aim of forming a Trust to oversee and manage the restoration of the remaining WW1/2 hangars on the former RAF airfield at Hooton Park, Cheshire. The long term aim is to provide a multifunctional site, as well as restoring the buildings & the site itself as valuable historic artefacts in their own right. The buildings will then provide the perfect environment for the projects and initiatives that are planned.
